The UNCHAINED OSU event will feature abolionist speakers, UNCHAINED Fashion Show and the New Vision Dance Company to fundraise prevention and awareness efforts for UNCHAINED at this first annual UNCHAINED fundraiser for the UNCHAINED organization.
The UNCHAINED fashion show is a creative and artistic way to engage students and community members with the heavy topic of human trafficking through fashion. It features 30 dresses designed by a Project Runway designer, narration, and video facts to educate audiences on awareness and prevention of human trafficking. UNCHAINED's script educates on recruitment tactics and is written directly from the experiences of a female victims in Columbus, Ohio through garments, narration and video facts on human trafficking. It combats using women or girls for sexual purposes, dominating or controlling them, combats the cultural norm of the objectification and over-sexulization of women and girls, and instead encourages dignity and worth in young females and teaches them to empower one another.
New Vision Dance Company is a company based in Columbus, OH and will perform a dance routine in collaboration with the UNCHAINED fashion show performance.
